Meet the Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive the dental care that reflects their individual needs. This is fundamental to how our practice schedules appointments and works with our patients.  Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family in our practice and we look forward to working with you. We are happy to introduce you our skilled, friendly, and dedicated team.

Aryana “Jackie” Perez

Receptionist

Jackie is our friendly and experienced receptionist, and has been with the practice since 2008. She is the one who sends you appointment reminders, greets you in our office, and helps you with everything involving insurance coverage.

Jackie is a graduate of Annandale High School. In her free time, she enjoys shopping, shows, and spending time with her handsome son, Romeo.

Flor Flores Iraheta

Dental Assistant

Flor will greet you and invite you to your dental chair, take your X-rays, and make sure you are comfortable for your dental procedure with Dr. Nastea and/or our hygienist. Flor has been with our practice since 2016 and is an excellent, dedicated, and friendly dental assistant.

Katerina "Kat" Nastea

Dental Assistant (part time)

Kat helps the team part time as a Dental Assistant, during school breaks and in other times when she is physically away from school, which happened more this year with COVID and in-person schooling restrictions. Kat is a full-time rising fourth-year student at University of Virginia, majoring in Kinesiology, minoring in Psychology, and also fulfilling pre-med requirements. Kat is dental Xray-trained, with a certificate from NOVA, and is CPR-certified. Kat's professional aspiration is to become a medical doctor (specialty still under consideration, maybe Psychiatrist, maybe Ophthalmologist, certainly TBD at this time).
